Bluetooth Retrofit

Bluetooth Retrofit Kit for 996.1 Turbo – Carrera – C4S – C4 and 986.1 Boxster era vehicles. The idea is simple, include EVERYTHING in a kit to make the installation DIY simple, AND provide functionality of streaming Bluetooth from your Android or iPhone to 2000 era factory head units. Perfect for enthusiasts who don’t want to add an aftermarket head unit to stream Bluetooth – our kit retains the factory look.

NOTE:  Does NOT work with MOST systems, like CDR-23 in 2003 onward vehicles.

Installation Requirements:

  • DIY skills:  Requires removal of radio head unit with supplied removal keys, removal of cubby shelf and drilling a hole with supplied stepped drill bit, routing wires behind the console and securing, connecting up power wires to existing wiring, etc.  If you don’t feel you have the know-how, contact one of our Preferred Shops HERE.
  • Factory Head Unit:  Works in Porsche vehicles with:  Becker Traffic Pro, Mexico CD (7803, CC4325, CC4327, CD4337, CC4370), CR-22, CDR-22, CR-220, CDR-220.  Does NOT work with MOST can-bus systems, e.g. CDR-23.
  • CDR-210, CR-210 and PCM1 radios must also have a CD Changer port (even if there is no CD Changer in the car).
  • Factory head unit with CD option (will use the blue plug) on the back:

Blue plug from CD changer (your unit may or may not have one – depending upon if the car came with the optional remote CD changer) 

  • If you have a single disc head unit player – the CD player will work, use the AUX function for BT.
  • If you have a remote multi-disc CD player, it will be disconnected from the head unit and be unusable.
    (BUT, we are working on a future solution that keeps both available!)
  • Feedback:  Take pictures, videos and notes during install – provide feedback to Rennkit as opportunities for improvements to the kit, installation methods or instructions.
